Mukesh Ambani is one of the richest men in the world, and Nita Ambani is considered to be one of the most influential women in the world because of her contribution in sports, business, education and art. Nita practised Bharatnatyam since she was very young while Mukesh handled his father’s business. Mukesh’s father saw Nita on stage and found her to be the perfect combination of beauty, intelligence and culture. He played Cupid and convinced her to meet his son. Mukesh proposed to Nita on their seventh date when they were inside a car in heavy traffic on Peddar Road. He was not going to start the car until she replied. Nita agreed to the marriage if she could continue teaching after marriage. They have been married for 30 years now and still going strong, and Nita heads one of the top schools in Asia.
